It’s finally here- Week 4 of the 2023 season, and the third DraftKings main slate. We are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership. The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it
Justin Fields v DEN ($6,600)
Panic alarms are ringing in the windy city, and rightfully so after Chicago’s 0-3 start to the season. The defeats, whilst tough to take, can almost be accepted. But it’s the nature of these losses and the performances on the offensive side of the ball that will have Bears fans justifiably concerned. Justin Fields managed a mere 99 yards in the blowout loss to the Chiefs last Sunday and has seen his total passing attempts decrease week on week. However, he did manage a season-high 11 rushes for 47 yards. Fields has been priced down $1100 since the Bears opening contest of the season and his ownership will be at an all-time low. He now gets to face a Broncos unit that gave up 70 total points to Miami and 8 total TDs to their running backs. This has to be a get-right game for Fields…right?
Joe Burrow @TEN ($6,500)
After a rough opening couple of weeks, Cincinnati finally got in the win column with a scrappy victory over the Rams on Monday Night Football. While Ja’Marr Chase managers were delighted by the two-time Pro Bowler’s output, those who rostered his quarterback would have been less than enamored. Burrow’s calf injury was clearly still bothering him Monday night, but the 2019 Heisman winner still recorded a season-high in passing attempts. Completing 26 of the 49 for 259 yards. Joey B only has 2 scores on the year, both against Baltimore in week 2, but this week the Bengals travel to Tennessee to face a Titans defense allowing 300 yards per game to opposing QBs. At $6500 this may be the cheapest we see Burrow all season, start him with confidence.
C.J. Stroud v PIT ($5,600)
Another week, another exemplary performance from the rookie. Stroud is making this look easy, through his first 3 career starts he has thrown for 906 yards and 4 touchdowns, and despite coming up against a much stouter Steelers defense this weekend, he is still a great DFS play at only $5600. He has quickly found a rhythm with receivers Nico Collins and fellow rookie Tank Dell, and until we see his pricing go north of the $6000 mark, my Stroud exposure week to week will be high. The Texans rookie signal caller is a great foundational piece if you’re looking to spend up on McCaffrey, Jefferson, or Tyreek Hill this week.
